On Oct 17 (2021) we hosted a FANTASTIC IN-PERSON LECTURE with magic icon JOSHUA JAY! This was a rare chance to see one of magic's most creative & exciting performers here in Portland - and he did not disappoint!
(Sorry but it was for attendees only and not available via recording or transmission.)
Sunday, Oct 17, 6:00 pm,
Airport Sheraton Inn
Josh had so much fun here that - schedule permitting - he tentatively agreed to be one of our headliners at the 2023 PMJ. (We've been trying to get him here for YEARS!)
For those who don't know who JJ is, a few credits are in order. He's fooled Penn & Teller on Fool Us, appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon & The Late Show with James Corden. He's a former 1st Place Winner at the World Magic Seminar, was voted 2020 Magician of the Year by the Society of American Magicians, & has won the FISM Creativity Prize. Over his lifetime he's created a ton of fantastic magic, and co-owns Vanishing Inc Magic, one of the largest and most prolific companies in magic.
Seth Howard has opened up a brick-&-mortar magic shop in downtown Astoria. So if you find yourself in that area be sure to stop by! In fact it might even be worth a special trip! It's open 10-6 everyday except Tuesdays.
